  Calling all canoers
  Posted by: lookie17 on Aug-04-14 12:27 AM (EST)
 

I live in Boise and I am active in the Idaho Canoe & Kayak Club. However that is pretty much kayaks and SUPs. I am a long time kayaker who is transitioning to canoeing with a Mad River Courier for flat water and getting a Wenonah Recon for white water (which I managed to get a Bob Foote pedestal for.

Anyhow there is only a handful of canoers in the area these days as most people SUP or ww kayak. I have the start of a small dedicated group that mostly if not entirely canoes and I would like to see it come back in full force. So if anyone is interested let me know so we can get together.

  Canoe Renaissance coming
  Posted by: yatipope on Aug-04-14 10:18 AM (EST)
I sense a canoe renaissance coming right around the corner. All those SUPers are gonna get tired of standing up all the time and will figure out with a little balance and training, you can ALSO stand up in canoes when the desire is there. I call ALL canoeists to bring a long 62" or longer paddle with them while planning a trip where SUPers frequent and then when safe and the opportunity presents itself, stand up and paddle where they can see you. I have done this a few times and I always get approached in amazement by SUPers

As things get old they become new again. I would love to see a whole new group of canoers.

never left Maine. Its been around for a hundred years.

So all of a sudden some SOCAL marketing guru got rich? PFFT. In Maine we have always stood tall in our canoe (I do admire the skill of the Wenonah guy) and poled.
